A fun interactive game unit that teaches spelling, counting and phonics with sounds, tunes and 26 light-up flashing keys. Choose between eight different activities. There is one that teaches them to count, five that quiz them on sounds, words and letters, and two that show them tunes and colours. Ideal for learning through play, the Phonics Desk will encourage your little ones in their first steps towards being able to read. As they progress through each game or activity, they can have lots of fun with sounds and words – learning the letters of the alphabet, how various sounds are used in words and how to spell, as well as colours and numbers. The alphabet desk uses the same teaching method that’s used in schools, called phonics, making it just right to prepare your little ones for the future. The Phonics Alphabet Desk allows your children to learn at their own pace. They’ll get a wonderful sense of achievement every time they get an answer right.
